Ferlin produce the industry leading Gravimix blenders.
GRAVIMIX is an efficient dosing-, weighing and blending system. The GRAVIMIX is suited for use on injection-molding, extrusion and blow-molding machines and as central-blender for several processing machines where consistency and high quality is required.
The blenders can be installed directly on the processing machine or placed on a stand with integrated vacuum take-off box next to the processing machine or on a platform above the processing machine. Components are dosed individually using pneumatically operated slide valves or have a combination with one to two electrically operated tube feeders.Each component is dispensed directly into the weigh-pan which is supported by a high precision loadcell system. When all the components are correctly weighed, the complete batch is discharged into the mixing chamber. An efficient horizontal mixer provides an uniform blend. A level sensor in the mixing chamber controls the total dosing cycle. For an extended version of this video please visit the Ferlin Website.
